The sequence we heard was not this.  it was (from the front) whir (maybe 2
seconds), Click.  Then from the back a soft click about 1.5 seconds later.

There are two sensors disconnected and connected to the pots on the dash.

We got it started. It runs very rich, that chug chug type of running, with
lots of smoke and smell of gas.  At a high idle we measured 15.31v at the
generator big post and 14.09 volts at the battery.  My son was really
excited that we got it running.  Since he is paying for everything, he is
jazzed that we might get going without a rebuild, which is what I told him
would probly be needed when we looked at it.

Looking forward to your reply and thanks in advance,

Jim showker
